Red Alert! Hot pieces for V-Day round Glasgow
It’s that time of year when love is in the air, things are heating up and the world is full of heart-eye emoji’s. You know I love to shop local, and I’ve found some gorgeous and affordable pieces round Glasgow and the surrounding areas that will make the perfect Valentine’s date night outfit or a perfect gift for that special someone.
Love It! Boutique
On Paisley Road West, it’s hard to walk past this lush window display by Shirley and Joanne at Love It! *DISCLAIMER* I am not included! I went along to find some Valentine’s inspiration and ended up as one of their mannequins in between red blouses, blazers and of course the glittering scarlet hearts shimmering above me! It’s so much fun in that little shop with such a welcoming and friendly environment, and the ladies have really got into the loving spirit featuring so many reds this season, which I adore! I think red is a colour that stays classy, no matter what situation.
The jumpsuit I have on is from Lavish Alice and can be yours for £85! It can be worn with sandals in metallic silver or gold or my favourite, a pair of nude court shoes! The ladies have a fab range of clothes from casual to occasion wear to get you in the mood for love, and they also stock Orli and Katie Wu jewellery to finish off that look, or to buy as a Valentine’s gift! The perfect present for an accessory fan, both styles of jewellery are equally as beautiful. I particularly love the heart designs on the Orli jewellery, so pop along and have a look and a cuppa with the ladies!
Princess Angel Star Clothing
As soon as Deborah from PSA showed me this dress I was like “this is amazing for a Valentine’s Date!” I just love the sweet sugar pink with a splash of daring bright red at the bottom… and then when you turn around boom boom BOOM you have full sexy senorita RED! It’s bold, bright, daring and super glam yet understated and classy because of the cut of the neckline and the small split at the thigh. The look would be perfect with a diamond sparkling choker! Fall in love with the Sierra dress this Valentine’s… it can be yours for £54! Princess Angel Star is another one of my favourites with a gorgeous local lady running the online clothing boutique making designer and high street more affordable and everything is just that little bit more unique and something different to what everyone else has! Have a browse and see for yourself online.
Inside the Forge Inshops you can find the hidden gem that is Aleena’s Boutique, full of unique pieces and great inspiration for Valentine’s Day! If you’re going on a date during the day, daytime drinks or even want to get into the loving spirit on the lead up to V-Day then this grey jumper with a read heart is for you! At £27 it’s affordable and gorgeous and can be teamed up with this season’s must have vinyl leggings also available in store, or even a pair of skinny jeans! Also at Aleena’s you can pick up a unique Valentine’s gift box for a fabulous present, I just love this idea!
Inside every box is a gorgeous pair of earrings, a pair of fluttery eyelashes (I have a pair from here and they are stunning!), a lipgloss and an eyeshadow palette! If you’re not sure what to buy the glam one in your life this is perfect if they loves accessories and make up! Complete with 12 shades, the eyeshadow palette is stunning for creating daytime and evening looks and combining the lipgloss, lashes and earrings you’re ready to go for a night out… all you need is that hot date! And what’s best? This Valentine’s box comes in at only £10! Yes that’s right, £10 for all of that! It’s the perfect gift!
Deja Elite Boutique
Look no further if you’re needing some V-Day shoes, these stunning red stud stilettos with multi-coloured straps are just what you need to match any outfit and make it a show stopper! Inspired by the Valentino Rockstud shoes but at £69.99 they are affordable and look fabulous! Available in sizes 3-6, grab a pair and slay!
This is one of my favourites ever so I had to include it… I just adore this little red Ada dress that I picked up at the boutique last year, and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day – they still have some online for £65! It’s absolutely stunning. The gorgeous bandage dress features an open crossover front with a mesh stripe skirt. It fastens with a rear concealed zip and clip and has great support inside. It looks absolutely WOW on and is one you can wear time and time again! I love Deja Elite for classic bandage styles and also full-on glitzy glam for those extra special occasions! Take a look at their stuff on Instagram.
Amour Des Fleurs
Let’s be honest, what Valentine’s outfit is complete without a bouquet of the finest roses? None! In fact, what about a luxury boxed flower arrangement personally created for your loved one, or in fact for YOU? Because hey – treat yo’self! Proudly based in Glasgow with an online emporium of roses, Amour Des Fleurs offers a wide range of floral designs peronsally created for each and every customer. Whether it’s birthdays, Christmas or of course Valentine’s, Amour Des Fleurs is your go-to for the most luxurious roses! The roses are 100% natural, grown in the soil and harvested at the peak of their natural beauty. And can’t you just tell?!
Each Box will illuminate any room, holding fresh sustainable roses that are cut short to encourage a longer life span. They are then inserted into their own individual water tube to ensure 100% hydration (I know, amazing!) and bring full rose bloom to you or that lucky person who’s face will be brightened with the vibrant colours and perfectly formed roses. Each rose is personally hand layered elegantly and the whole creation is simple yet stunning. All you have to do to order on their site is select one of our five carefully curated luxury boxes and your colour and the team will work with you to create the most amazing present!
The best part is that Amour Des Fleurs have a pop up shop in Silverburn for Valentine’s Day from 7th – 14th February… stunning AND local! What more could you want? If you check out their Facebook you can see a little video of the pop-up! It looks lush!
So get yourself a whole new look, add some gorgeous roses and you’re ready to spread the L-O-V-E! Oh… and make sure that special someone has a table booked for dinner and some cocktails in your new outfit!
Lots of LOVE,
